Well that is part 2 of the upgrade, currently the 3" drivers in the pillars are powered by the decks inboard amp, and the doors (front and rear) run off the NVX 4 channel under the drivers seat.

I'm changing both amps (4 channel and the sub amp) to SKAR amps.
I will then run the lot from the new amp.

Of course I will post the upgrades.;-)

The 3" pillars wired to the decks amp are using the decks X over, the tweeters in the doors use a passive that came with the JBL separates. The mids are wired thru those same X overs.

I'm going to change that to the new amps on board X over for all but the tweets, I will be using caps on those.

Now a little tuning and we should be good.

First impressions..much brighter sound stage, more pronounced vocals.

Going to take some tweaking, but so far I'm happy.

Yes, those Vifa tweets are crossed over differently, so it's all part of the plan.
